Match tickets for Town v Maldon & Tiptree (Buildbase FA Trophy, Wednesday 9th December 7.45pm)
Discussions are still ongoing about the resumption of league matches at Step 3 level, but our Buildbase FA Trophy first round match at home to Maldon & Tiptree on Wednesday 9th December, 7.45pm kick-off, is scheduled to go ahead as a limited capacity all-ticket match, taking account of the experience of staging recent matches and of government guidelines. There are some adjustments to previous matches, and further adjustments may continue to be made in the light of any further Covid-19 guidance. General season tickets are not valid for this match, but Gold #GoToTown subscribers can gain entry via the gate next to the turnstiles by presenting their season card or, if not collected yet, by giving their details to the steward on the gate.
Tickets can be purchased via https://shop.etfc.london/events.
Ticket applicants will be issued with a digital quick response (QR) code e-ticket which can be swiped at the gate on a mobile phone or be printed out for entry. Please note that an invoice will also be forwarded; this is not your ticket. If there are any issues with e-ticket delivery, please check your spam/junk folders before emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be an opportunity to purchase a seat in the very limited accommodation in the main stand (an additional £4). Now that club shop arrangements are up and running, hard copy matchday programmes will be available on the day (£2.50 cash or contactless payment at the club shop), ie not reserved in advance. E-copies (£2) will be available in advance of the match at https://shop.etfc.london/product-category/match-day-programme
In line with government guidelines, the club is highly unlikely to be operating a bar service. FA rules stipulate that alcohol cannot be brought into the stadium. Any further changes for this match will be notified as soon as possible.
As announced previously, the club have taken a number of comprehensive precautions to make the QEII Stadium safe, particularly with regard to social distancing. All spectators need to be fully aware that attendance at the match will be entirely at their own risk. You must follow government guidelines and self-diagnose before travelling to the QEII Stadium. If you, or any of your household, are experiencing any symptoms which may be related to Covid-19, you should not travel and you should follow NHS advice. At the QEII Stadium you agree to respect others, abide with social distancing guidelines and measures that the club have put in place, and undertake to follow all advice given by ETFC stewards, officials and via tannoy announcements.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience whilst we adapt to constantly evolving ways of working, as the club looks to do the right thing, incrementally, with the safety of all in mind. Certain facilities will remain closed or be limited. There will be signage in place, and parts of the ground will be subject to a one-way system for additional safety. Toilets will be subject to social distancing measures. Spectators should come prepared for inclement weather as there will be a strict adherence to maintaining social distancing under the limited cover at the ground. Umbrellas are permitted, although you should of course bear in mind the need to avoid blocking other spectators’ view. Please use the NHS Covid-19 app at the entrance if you have downloaded it.
